Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Very happy with the keyboard itself. The only downside is that the case has a blue tone. I thought its black looking at these pictures.
I bought the Keychron product based on recommendation with one of my co-worker. It is a good buy because I was looking for a TKL keyboard for couple of months now. My criteria was no bling bling stuff, It must be hot key swappable and compatible with PC and Mac and last but not least the price should be reasonable. So when I checked the K8, I was very happy to have all my criteria met. I bought it right away and it came to my desk after two or three weeks (could not remember well). The keyboard is very nice/neat and solid. I comes with the brown gateron switches which is a good compromise for my daily work and afterwork entertainment. It came with some useful keycaps for me. The crazy thing is it can be use wired and wireless. I love it. Frankly you cannot find something with so many functionalities at such price … you guys at Keychron ROCKS :))) Bravo.
However, the downside is that I think Keychron products should deserved a dedicated custom software to parameter the keyboard. I think It will give Keychron owner better experiences with your products. For sure I will recommend your product when I will have the opportunity. I wish the Keychron team a Merry Christmas and happy holiday’s season. Stay safe and go on with nice products. Cheers.
Best keyboard I‘d ever had and I have a lot :) Like the brown switches and the RGB
